Judge Karlin S Reelection

FEATURED ARTICLES
OPINION
June 14, 1992
Judge Karlin keeps talking about a "vocal minority" trying to impose its view on a "larger majority of the community." What majority? The jury found the woman who killed Latasha Harlins guilty of voluntary manslaughter. It was Karlin's own racism that prompted her to rule that the life of a black child is worth not even one day in jail. I don't think most Americans expect their judges to be "politically correct." But we do expect them to be just. And if they're not just, they should be thrown out of the system that Karlin professes to promote.
